Whilst looking around, we got to chatting about how independent wool shops were disappearing and I was really shocked to learn that if you excluded the shops in Leigh-on-sea and Southend the next nearest shop as the crow flies is in Erith in Kent but I bet it is not a patch on Bodkins!
Here is the web link: http://www.bodkins71.co.uk/ and below are some pics I took on my trip there
|Now you know that this is going to be good because...|
|You start to dribble when you see what they have in the window, Rico,|
Debbie Bliss, Eco wools, Sirdar, Sublime... let me into the shop... NOW!
|The owner, Jo had escaped from behind the till and was sorting out piece of Mini Pompom work for a customer... it looked as though she was knitting up Rainbow Puffed Rice|
|Just look and lust!|
|My official driver for the trip - aka as my lovely sister Annette, and yes, she bought the pattern and wool so far she has only completed the front but it is only 12 hours later|
